Event Industry Trends Continue to Soar in Global Popularity

Posted by on Feb 1, 2016 in event hire, event industry, Large Event, news | Comments Off on Event Industry Trends Continue to Soar in Global Popularity

event promotions

2015 was a banner year for event promotions and social interactive events. From concerts and team-building functions to philanthropic causes – countless festivals revolved around a myriad of burgeoning technologies.

This includes social media integration and uploads, along with shared WI-FI and live streaming to niche, core, and mass audiences. With the New Year upon us, the event industry is slated to grow by leaps and bounds. There are, however, certain aspects to keep a keen eye on when planning your next social gathering. No truer is this then when it comes to political rallies in this election year – which will be the base for numerous events and parties across the nation.

Content is Still King

Even with the new digital age upon us, captivating and compelling content is still essential. This includes fresh and gripping blog posts, which must attract and engage your audiences in a timely and effective manner. Digital content via websites and forums must also be easy to scan and digest. According to event planners and industry gurus – the “less is more” approach is vital in generating a lasting buzz about your event. This means any content you produce must be concise, precise, and to the point. This will engage your guests and patrons in an interactive manner – while keeping them on your pages and secure higher conversion rates and visibility.

Social Media Integration

social media integrationNo public or private event marketing plan is ever complete without social media integration. With over a million brands listed within these platforms and networks – it is crucial to keep using Facebook and Twitter to advertise your event or function. This generates a buzz about your event, while effectively attracting mass audiences and guests. The social media utilities are also great for posting the latest event news and videos, along with venue dates, timings, and especially live Q&A with potential and confirmed guests. The social media pages are also great for:

  • Setting up one-time or recurring Event pages.
  • Discussing any potential issues, concerns, or event related questions and enquiries.
  • Blog and website integration – a key element in marketing your event to new attendees while increasing web traffic and patronage.
  • Mobile integration – another key element in promoting your event to wireless, remote, and digital device users.
  • Live chats – group chats – the perfect interactive platform and forum for all your social events, family gatherings, reunions, concerts, and other festivals.

Mobile Marketing

With mobile marketing continuing to be all the rage, all your sites and blogs must be optimized for mobile viewing. They should also feature responsive web design, which allows content to reshuffle itself when accessed by mobile devices. While broad-based marketing is paramount, mobile advertising allows you to establish a strong online presence at the grassroots level. This is essential for any event planner, since it draws in potential attendees via local posts, citations, and even Google maps and testimonials. Without mobile integration, you will only be marketing your event to less than half of the web community.

Technology Sharing

Technology sharing also plays a key role in successful outdoor or indoor events. It will be up to you to determine bandwidth restrictions or access for guests using Wi-Fi to post pictures and videos while at the event.

outdoor catering at wedding

Catering services often include more than just food catering. Wedding caterers may offer marquee hire, furniture, and even decorations in addition to catering the food for your event. Office catering may only provide food. The kind of catering services that you will receive will depend greatly on the type of party catering that you require. The difference in services may also be affected by the kind of catering company that you use and the catering equipment that is required to successfully cater your event. An outside catering company may have more equipment for big event catering, but restaurants in London may provide a more personalized menu and service.

Most catering companies will include marquees, tables and chair rental for a slightly higher fee. When combined with food catering, though, discounts may be available. Using this kind of catering rental has great benefits. Kitchen equipment is taken care of because they use their own, and they include many of the other catering supplies in the price that they give you. They often have more experience in larger event catering as well, so you can be sure that you are getting the service that you pay for. Often times these are used for wedding catering and other large events.

Posted by on Sep 16, 2015 in catering, events, Food | Comments Off on Ensure that your event goes off without a hitch

Event Food

No party, wedding or event can really be complete without catering. Luckily, a huge, cosmopolitan city like London has no shortage of catering companies with the skills and experience to ensure that your event goes off without a hitch.

While some catering companies specialize in a specific type of cuisine, such as French or Italian, others are more flexible and will work with you to help design a menu that fits your specific tastes and your budget.

tasting dishesIf you’re concerned about the quality of the food that will be served, many companies will offer you the chance to taste the various dishes that they have on offer.

This way you’ll be able to be more confident in your choice of caterer, as you will already have had a chance to taste some of the various dishes that the restaurant is able to prepare.

Another important thing to consider is the cooking facilities that are available at your chosen venue. This is important because it will help you determine which type of catering company you’ll need to hire. For instance, you may need to look for a company that offers kitchen equipment or catering supplies in addition to preparing and serving the food. If the venue has no suitable kitchen, you may want to hire a caterer that is located within a short distance of the venue as they will need to transport the prepared food from their kitchen to the location.

  1. Conclusion

At the end of the day, choosing a catering company isn’t all that difficult. All it takes is being willing to put in the time to properly research your choices to find a company that is willing to listen to your needs and deliver what you want. Catering hire doesn’t even have to be that expensive, as there are plenty of companies that offer more budget friendly options. Not all caterers prepare five star French cuisine, as you can always find companies offer more pub style fare. So don’t be afraid to seek out what you want to ensure your event is exactly as you’d imagined.
